Jason Thomas Crocker Photography | Des Moines Wedding Photographer

5.0

Des Moines, IA
  • Photojournalistic style

Hi, I’m Jason, a Des Moines wedding photographer who travels around the globe photographing weddings. After documenting over 500 weddings, I can honestly say that no two weddings are the same! I strive for epic compositions with my photojournalistic approach to wedding photography to capture the true essence of who you are as a newly married couple. In addition to my skills as a photographer, I’ve also built my client experience to infuse more fun and less stress into your wedding day.

What an incredible photographer! We cannot say enough good things about Jason and how great he was to work with on our wedding day. He is extremely talented and all of our pictures from our special day are phenomenal. He was so easy to work with and really made the entire bridal party feel comfortable and confident as we took photos throughout the day. We could not recommend him enough to other couples looking for a wedding day photographer. We are so grateful to him for what a fantastic job he did!

Corah B Photography

Ankeny, IA
  • Photojournalistic style
  • Starts at $3,500

I'm a 20 something lover of all things love- as cliche as it is- it's the truth. I'm wildly in love with my other half and have grown a glorious marriage with two beautifully broken people. That is one of my favorite things about wedding days, seeing the two become one and watching your lives and loves to grow into beautiful families for years to come! My priority as your wedding photographer is knowing you. With facetime calls, coffee dates, we deep dive into your story, priorities of your wedding day, and ultimately the vibe you want with your day and photos. As someone in a messy, beautiful marriage, I want to be a part of that with you.

Corah is absolutely amazing. One day before our reception, we found out we had COVID-19 and had to cancel. We were able to have our reception at a different location, but with very short notice. She rescheduled, had another meeting with me, and helped me figure out times to set everything for. I knew already how wonderful she was just going through this process. The day of our reception, she was beyond helpful. She helped me with my dress, she found the bustles, she even stacked my cake to tier it when everyone else was afraid to! She made us feel so relaxed during the pictures, at one point we even forgot we were taking them. We had a lot of fun even though we were all freezing! My husband and my family usually dread taking pictures, but they all had so much fun and loved working with Corah. Although this was my first time meeting her in person, she acted as a friend by calming my nerves and making us feel comfortable, not just for the pictures but for our reception too. The pictures were BEYOND my expectations!! Some of the pictures I couldn't even believe were us, it looks like she took them from a magazine. I can't even narrow down my top 5 favorite pictures. I don't really have the words to describe how blown away I was while looking through the pictures for the first time. Corah is an amazing person, and photographer.

Haverlee Photography

5.0

Des Moines, IA
  • Classic style
  • Starts at $4,000

I’m Haverlee, (hay-verlee), solo parent of three wild things. My photography career was birthed from many years of pain. My life derailed and everything felt unstable and uncertain. The more difficult things became, the more I clung to small moments of beauty. When things felt dark, I clung to the light. And I could always find light in people and in nature. Focusing on others instead of my own dark days brought me joy every time without fail. I always knew I was creative but it took me a while to find my niche! As I ventured into photography, everything fell into place. It was as if I already knew the language, I just had to find the words.

Awarded Best of Zola
I don’t have fancy words, other than Haverlee is brilliant in every way. Her photos and work are breathtaking (it doesn’t take much digging to confirm this), but there’s more to her that sets her apart from other talented photographers. She is professional, directive (I’m awkward and need direction), kind, patient, knows when to step in/speak up and when to blend in and let clients have their moment, and captures these moments/emotions/feelings beautifully. My husband and I looked through every photo with tears and smiles because we re-experienced the emotions of the wedding day just by her photos. Any 2020 bride can agree that nothing goes as planned, and even if it did it was loaded with stress. Haverlee was SO supportive, understanding and flexible with all the changes. She made us feel comfortable and like she had our back through it all. She goes above and beyond for her clients. I will hire her again and again and again!

The Farmhouse Studios

5.0

Altoona, IA
  • Fine art style
  • Starts at $2,000

We have proudly been serving our couples and families for over 17 years, and every year we fall more in love. My name is Jen, the owner of Farmhouse Studios. At the young age of 17 we begin our photo journey with zero idea it would become what it is today. Having shot over 1000 weddings worldwide, we have been gifted with the most beautiful gift of sharing in the most joyous days of our couples lives. We cherish all of the memories, adventures, and creative moments we have shared!

As all brides, I was hoping to find a photographer who would capture the essence of my wedding day. Not just the posed photos, but the behind-the-scenes glimpses as well. Jenni Machir with The Farmhouse Studios exceeded all my hopes by far! She not only made the wedding party and guests feel comfortable, but I hardly noticed she was there once the party got started. She somehow managed to focus on the details without being distracting or imposing. Jenni will ask you to trust her, and it is well worth it. She has a natural eye, and the experience to back it up. When it came to getting the shot, Jenni was not afraid to roll around in the grass, walk through weeds, and move branches out of the way to make it happen. She was relentless for 8 hours and showed patience and grace the entire time. The turnaround time was shockingly fast, and I am not kidding when I say that every single picture is stunning. I can't stop looking at them and am SO happy I will be able to relive the memories through the photos. If you're wondering where to find a photographer who will make your wedding vision come to life, I urge you to contact her!

Des Moines, IA
  • Photojournalistic style

I’m Colby (he/him), your local neighborhood dog parent/beer lover/former mascot/barbershop singer/wedding and elopement photographer. My love language is shouting compliments at you. I love people and hate crowds. I prefer long hikes in the mountains to ones on the beach, but both are better than sitting at home. I really, really don’t like having my photo taken - and if we have that in common, we might work really well together.

Awarded Best of Zola
I cannot put into words how perfectly Colby Campbell Photography made our special day. From day one we knew that Colby was going to be amazing to work with and that we had found the photographer to bring our wedding day to life and he did just that! The quality is top-notch and his passion shows through his work. I often go back and look through our photos from our wedding and I am in awe of how every moment was captured so perfectly. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of a photographer for any type of event as they will bring joy, fun, and help you capture memories to look back on for years to come. Thank you Colby Campbell Photography!

Meghan did a tremendous job photographing our big day! So much that we have used her since then for a mini-session! From the moment we reached out to Meghan she was incredibly organized and detail oriented - it took away a lot of stress on our part! Family moments, first looks, dancing shots, and of course all the fun ideas we had - she got every moment perfectly. Receiving our photos was so exciting and we love being able to look back on our big day. Believe me, we look at them A LOT! I cannot recommend MEG Photography & Design enough!

I’m Laura Nichole! Welcome to my little nook of the web. From local Iowa venues to crossing state lines and flying over country boarders, I have had the blessing of capturing timeless moments of the most amazing humans you could ever meet! Can I be your biggest fan?? I want to capture your favorite memories, the highs, the lows, and everything in between, so that when you look at your images you can remember exactly how you felt in those moments. I want you to see just how captivating and special you truly are.

Laura did our engagement and wedding photos, and they always turned out stunning! I had to do a lot of photographer recon before choosing, as Joe and I are both pretty pale. I noticed some photographers wash out color. I chose Laura because her style didn't do that to us, and the depth of her colors really stood out to me! Joe and I have never been publicly affectionate, and Laura respected that and gave us great prompts to make us feel comfortable. Our photos turned out amazing, and I can't wait to frame some to have around the house!

  • Fine art style
  • Starts at $2,000

Hello, I am Kara Vorwald. Although I am a wonderer, for now I am based in Des Moines Iowa. I travel throughout the midwest and beyond! (especially anywhere warm during the winter months.) I am a mamma to 3 of the wildest free kids and 4 cats. A wife to an amazing creative husband. If I am not creating something I feel like I would burst over. So I am usually found knitting, baking, quilting, painting or something similar when I am not busy taking photos. I love being a photographer and capturing special moments and memories for others.

We hired Kara for our wedding and we knew it was going to be a good decision. As a professional wedding photographer myself, I have worked with Kara on weddings, so hiring her was easier than picking out cocktail napkins. I had the same experience professionally as I did as a client: she’s super supportive, laid back, takes good care her clients and delivers a phenomenal product. Kara is super easy to work with, and she made my wedding day so easy.

  • Starts at $5,700

I’m Alyssa. You can call me Lys. (It rhymes with Kiss) ☺ I'm a photographer based in Des Moines, Iowa. I travel often. Couples, elopements, and small weddings are my speciality. My style leans documentary, timeless, and sincere, with some avant-garde editorial vibes, artsy influences, and good old fashioned weirdness mixed in. I love color, flash, film, and all things non-traditional. I got my start in music photography, which greatly informs my shooting style, and have been documenting Iowa's music scene and touring with bands for over 10 years!

I'm a micro-wedding venue owner and I recently hosted a gorgeous LGBTQ+ styled shoot. From beginning to end Alyssa was a pleasure to work with. She initiated correspondence - including overall vision, clear expectation, and a comprehensive schedule for all vendors. Her ability to pull a vision together and pay attention to detail are equally strong. She had the ability to manage a project while simultaneously making all vendors and models feel comfortable. She excels at bringing out the most of her models & left the venue in great condition. I will not hesitate to work with Alyssa again - She's an absolute pleasure!

Hello there! I'm Andrea, owner of Amative Creative, and every weekend we're so blessed to be able to tell the love stories of so many amazing couples. Like many others in this industry might say, we simply adore weddings. But what makes us a little different is our entire brand is centered around telling love stories specifically curated to reflect your vision and aesthetic. "Amative" means to be prone to love, so as you can see, we want nothing more than to tell your love story! But what makes us truly unique is that we understand every love story looks different. And we personalize every aspect of how we document your wedding day!

Awarded Best of Zola
It gives me no pleasure giving Andrea a less than perfect review, because her pictures are indeed gorgeous and she is a very talented editor and artist, and I do love my photos. With that, there were some things during the process I wish were more transparent and I thought others should be informed. She does not honor her contract at all/it needs to be updated. My signed contract stated I’d receive min 3 previews within 3 days of my wedding. I waited a full week until contacting her; she stated that the contract was “old” and didn’t account for editing…again so update it. OR at the very least admit and let me know you will not be meeting the terms of the agreement and tell me when I can expect them (she didn’t). I had no reason to believe I wouldn’t get previews for over 2 weeks and it was incredibly disappointing/frustrating. Additionally, the photos she chose to include were not what I’d hoped, I had several pictures of my dj but zero of my family…like why? Additionally, 3 days before my wedding she texted me asking if it was okay for her to send someone else to do my wedding. Now, I am understanding of illness and family issues but if you really needed to sub my wedding, call me and and explain. But to put the decision on a CLIENT and ask if they are okay with you not coming as expected put me in a tough position, not to mention a stress I didn’t need before my wedding. The contract also stated I’d get the full gallery by the one month mark, and after I didn’t get the previews until almost then, I knew that timeline was laughable. I was provided no communication as to when I might expect them just that she was “unusually” busy (clearly overbooked, admitting 5 weddings a weekend, etc) Or, you can stalk her IG stories for her queue but that just shows you where you are in line, not when you can expect anything. Eventually I received my photos 16weeks after my wedding. While they were absolutely stunning, I was still a little upset about little details ignored (leaving scratches when I specifically asked to have them concealed out) or photos that were only provided in black and white, when I wanted color or the option for both. I’ll wrap up by saying yes her photos are amazing but go in aware deadlines won’t be met or communicated and you’re not guaranteed to actually have Andrea herself (I’m sure her whole team is amazing, shout out to Jo!) it’s clear anyone on her team is interchangeable. If you’re not bothered by any of that she’s amazing!

I have been a photographer for 8 years. Throughout my time as a photographer I’ve captured clothing, models, and memories. I shifted from corporate shootings to families and weddings because it gave me this warm fuzzy feeling when I edited my couples and families photos. Don’t be afraid to reach out to me and ask about my photography style, my editing style, or my favorite restaurant! I highly recommend scheduling a free consulting session!

Grace was just amazing. For a day that was overwhelming and very stressful, I cannot thank her enough for her calm and kindness. My now husband and I are usually not "photo people", as we tend to be more introverts than anything else, and she went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. Her professionalism and guidance during the shoot can be described as more than stellar. I will definitely recommend her to all of my friends who will be getting married soon. During all the chaos, I was extremely thankful to have chosen her as our photographer.

Hi, I’m Isaac. In my world, light is everything. The cool ambient hues at dawn, hinting at what the day may bring. Golden sun rays catching particles through a tree as friends gathers to celebrate. A Cotton candy sunset peppered by patio string-lights as a DJ plays my favorite song. We all have timeless memories logged in our minds. For me, they are based in a language of light. As a wedding photographer, this deep connection to special lighting helps me produce dynamic visual stories of romance, personality and beauty.

Awarded Best of Zola
Working with Love Knot Photography was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Isaac has an incredible eye and attention to detail, and it shows in the end result. I'm really glad to have had his expertise in setting up our wedding day timeline, and he delivered everything I was hoping for and much more in the final photos. His use of lighting and the natural environment is really special. The natural aesthetic of the finished photos is gorgeous. I have a large family and it was no easy task to deal with their different personalities and requests and Love Knot handled everything perfectly. The entire time throughout this process of planning and throwing a wedding Isaac has been very responsive and willing to help us with any questions we have anytime. It's an art to create photos this special, and another type of art to manage a business and respond to the individual needs of a client. And it's beautiful to see both come together so seamlessly. I will definitely be recommending Love Knot Photography to any of my family or friends who may be searching for a photographer.

J is truly incredible to work with! He immediately made me feel comfortable and wasn’t “pushy” when I was deciding on photographers. We picked him because 1.) his photography is seriously amazing, and 2.) he is a genuinely wonderful guy, and I knew he would put me at ease throughout the day. His rates are also very reasonable and there are no “hidden” fees. I really liked that he was with us the ENTIRE day too! We just got our wedding photos back (SUPER FAST TURNAROUND) and I am completely in love! I don’t even have the words to describe how incredible they are. He captured so many moments that I didn’t even know happened, and now we have hundreds of photos of people laughing and crying throughout the day that I wouldn’t have ever seen if he wasn’t there! We wanted someone that was artistic and didn’t just take the “stereotypical” wedding photos, and he exceeded our expectations. He was very responsive throughout the entire process and took the time to thoroughly answer every single question I had. He was even helpful during the wedding day with things not entirely photographer related, like helping me find something I lost at one point and exuding a “chill” vibe that definitely calmed everyone down! My entire family adored him, and we are already thinking of new events in life that we will hire J for! I am SO thankful he was with us for our engagement photos and wedding day, and I cannot recommend him enough!

I worked with P&L last year for a wedding in Des Moines, Iowa. I was the couple's photographer, and they handled videography, and though we only met the morning of the wedding, by the end of the day we had become such lovely friends. I have so many good things to say about their creative work (the video turned out stunning, and the rest of their portfolio is also gorgeous) and their presence (I have never had an easier time working with a videographer.) They had an uncommon knack for shifting between taking charge themselves and allowing me to direct the couple or their families, all the while exuding a sense of calm and control that put me, and I’m sure the couple, at ease. I often find that working with other vendors can be an intrusive or even combative process, where each is trying to vie to be the most important to the couple and which ultimately serves no one—the couple, me, or the vendor themselves— well. P&L are the antithesis of that. They are friendly, collaborative, and genuinely love their work, and it shows in how well they communicate and how much they dedicate themselves to the cause of documenting a couple’s big day in the best way possible.

That's why I choose not to pose couples, but instead prompt you to do something like "take off your shoes and run across the field" or " get inside the car and kiss everywhere except the lips". These prompts will help you feel comfortable and also help create candid images. Check out my website for more info :)

Jarrod and his wife, Taylor, are truly a dream to work with! My husband and I really wanted some simple engagement photos taken, but were reluctant because we’re not totally comfortable in front of the camera and didn’t want the poses/photos to look cheesy. Taylor gave us plenty of suggestions to pose us naturally and kept us laughing which put us at ease immediately. Jarrod was such a professional and really worked every angle and background to make it look like we spent an entire day shooting. The editing was super crisp and clean and the photos came back incredibly quickly. They far exceeded our expectations and we can’t thank them enough for giving us beautiful, lasting memories from such an important time in our lives. This couple is seriously amazing - genuine, fun, and experts at what they do!! Book them!

I've always been a creative at heart, my own mother is an artist so maybe it's genetic? However, photography was never on my radar. One fateful day, a friend reached out to me requesting engagement photos for her and her love. My iPhone and I were absolutely honored at the opportunity! After the debut of those beautiful, phone quality captures, the inquiries came rolling in! I was pleasantly surprised and within months decided it was only right to invest in proper gear. Officially established in 2021, I've been beyond blessed with the chance to meet so many wonderful people and capture their once in a lifetime moments! Anya Grace 🖤

Anya is a highly talented photographer. I struggle with following simple directions, which may be due to the language barrier as English is not my native language. However, Anya was extremely patient with me. I hired her twice for my wedding and graduation pictures, but I actually worked with her three times, including engagement photos, the wedding, and the graduation shoot. She made me feel like a celebrity in all the pictures. I highly recommend her to everyone.

WE ARE BASED IN NYC AND TAKE WEDDING COMISSIONS ALL AROUND THE US AND ABROAD BUT WE ARE ORIGINALLY FROM SPAIN AND PUERTO RICO MARIA IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER, ALL THE IMAGES ARE TAKEN AND EDITED BY HER. RICARDO IS YOUR VIDEOGRAPHER AND RUNS THE BUSINESS AND MAKES SURE EVERYTHING GOES AS IT SHOULD. THERE IS A LOT GOING ON BEHIND THE SCENES.OUR PHOTOGRAPHY IS BOLD & CREATIVE, AIMING TO TELL STORIES AND DOCUMENT THE REAL MOMENTS. WE ARE MORE THAN HAPPY TO SHOOT A FEW FORMALS AND WE ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO THE BRIDE AND GROOM SESSIONS.

This review is massively long overdue (we got married 5/20/2022), but I absolutely have to write one. Maria and Ricky are hands down the BEST people and we could not have been luckier to have the pleasure of them capturing our wedding! They got exactly the vibes we wanted, all the shots we wanted, were so easy to communicate with, and are just the nicest and most fun people! We did our engagement shoot with them in NYC and the photos could not have been any better. We communicated the types of shots we were looking for and, since they were living there, they were able to give us the best tips for location and shots! Our wedding was better than we could have ever imagined. We got the best posed shots and the absolute best candid shots. We barely even realized the were photographing/taking video of us during the reception which we loved, but we also just loved their presence. They were so much fun and added to the party, they were dancing while shooting and made everyone so happy and comfortable. Our guests still talk about them and how awesome they are! Our video is breathtaking, we are taken back to the day every time we watching and it always brings us to tears. The photos are incredible; we constantly look through our photos and love displaying them in our home to look at all the time. We have since referred several people to them because we would love everyone to have the same experience we had!

We're a husband and wife wedding photography duo! We love meeting new couples and providing a service that will have you looking back at your images years from now and still have you feeling those emotions you felt on your wedding day.

I had my session done by Debra and I felt so comfortable around her! At first, I was super nervous about how to pose and she told me what to do and I felt comfortable after that. I enjoyed every bit of the session and she gave me the edited photos within 3 days max which is awesome! I love the photos and the way she makes you feel beautiful on your special day! :) I highly recommend her for any kind of shoot that you have!

We are passionate about photographing kind-hearted people who are unapologetically themselves, and creating a safe and beautiful space in the wedding world for LGBTQ+ folx. Our favorite people to work with believe in giving back to their communities, that black lives always matter, that climate change is you know...real, and choose to embrace their own unique quirks and talents.

Awarded Best of Zola
When you elope in the middle of a pandemic, it matters all the more that you love your photographer--since they'll be the only other person at your wedding. :) And in short, we couldn't be happier that ours was Shawnee. She has such a gift and a love for the work she does—and it shows. We knew she was the right person from the moment we met on Zoom--she is warm and kind, asked all the right questions, and instantly put us at ease. My partner and I eloped at the end of October 2020 in DC, just before the election. It was a whirlwind moment for so many reasons, especially as a queer couple. And it mattered to us that the person who captured those treasured memories, really understood what that moment meant to us. Everyone who sees our photos marvels at how wonderful they are—and no doubt we look great, but Shawnee’s warmth and direction and stellar eye really made all the difference. Vibing with your photographer matters—we’re so grateful to have found one with such grace and as much love for her art as Shawnee. <3

I’m an Iowa based wedding and portrait photographer on a mission to capture joyful personalities + the moments where you just can’t stop smiling. I love rural Iowa, dessert for breakfast, outdoor adventures, and I’m a total homebody. Most of the time I can be found in jeans and a t-shirt with no makeup on, with my Golden Retriever, discovering the best rural Iowa has to offer. My style is timeless and true-to-life. I don’t use trendy filters or heavy editing techniques. I believe your photos should be a representation of who you really are, the life you live, and who you love spending it with.

Awarded Best of Zola
As a fellow vendor working beside Katie (me on video, her on photo) on someone's big day, she is all you could ask for when working in conjunction with someone on a wedding day. She was friendly and completely respectful of the work I needed to do, even though we had to work at the same time and in the same spaces. She was open to communicating about our needs and overall contributed positivity to the process. Photo and Video do not always team up effortlessly and thankfully Katie made it easy to do so! As someone who got to watch Katie at work, she really made an effort to make sure her shots were going to be beautiful (moving things around, finding the right lighting, etc). She was also so supportive and really hyped the couple up throughout the whole day, not only making them comfortable, but confident. I 100% enjoyed working with Katie and hope to do so again!

Hello my name is Olivia Frueh. I am a formally educated photographer who loves to capture your memorable milestones! I have found a love for my light and airy look that provides a more natural tone to my images.

Liv is absolutely amazing. We booked her for our engagement session and our wedding as well as a mini family session, and she did an incredible job. Her love/passion for photography is evident in her work. She not only stayed organized and reached out prior to our big day to sort out our timelines and plans, but during the reception she helped our night be enjoyable. Anytime she wasn’t visible it was because she was making sure to capture all of the best angles for some incredible candid shots by shooting high and low ️ (including getting in the floor if necessary ). Overall I’d recommend Liv into anyone looking for some natural and gorgeous images that is also willing to have an amazing and fun time! We will be booking Liv for any future photo shoots we may want or need! The price is worth it!

I’ll try to keep this short: I’m a silly, introverted, rule breaker with a sincere whimsical streak. Originally from Iowa with a decent chunk of time spent bopping between Minneapolis and Oregon, I love weddings + photography (duh), my nephew, a stiff gin + tonic, propagating too many damn houseplants, and my cats. Last I checked I’m an INFP, Enneagram 4, and Capricorn which makes me quite the pragmatic daydreamer + observer: as unnecessarily prepared as a Boy Scout, curiously creative, and hella laid back, all of which uniquely prepares me for the ebb and flow of a wedding day.

I can't say enough good things about Caitlin! My partner and I wanted more non-traditional portraiture for both our engagement photos and wedding and Caitlin just immediately understood the vibe we wanted. She's great at getting to know her clients and making you feel comfortable in front of the lens. Similarly, she just melts into the background during the wedding and captures everything you wanted and more, all without being front and center. You won't regret hiring her and I'd say book her while you still can, because she's only set to blow up more :)

We are SO happy with how the photos turned out and would hire him again in a heartbeat. Thank you Phil!
